Arc, an affiliate of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), launched Arc Re-Entry for facility managers and companies as they work on COVID-19 re-entry plans for their buildings and spaces.
Arc is a technology platform that allows teams overseeing the sustainability of buildings and places to collect data, manage and benchmark progress, measure impact, and improve performance. Arc Re-Entry consists of tools to document and benchmark infection-control policies and procedures, collect and analyze related occupant experiences, and measure and track indoor air quality around factors such as carbon dioxide, relative humidity, and particulate matter.
Facility managers can use the new tool set to generate a performance score for their buildings that provides a comparable measure of the breadth and documentation of facility management policies, occupant experience, and measured indoor air quality. Arc Re-Entry allows facility managers to evaluate the relationship between expectations for policies and procedures, and occupants’ experience.
It also provides buildings and facilities with the tools to compare their plans against the latest guidance. In addition, it helps identify opportunities to implement LEED’s Safety First Credits and the WELL Health-Safety Rating.
